When God spoke creation into existence, there were no human creations present to join Him in that endeavor. Why? Because in order for us to be present before creation, that would mean that we would have to be God, and that we are not.
Many people believe that they can create their reality by speaking what they desire to see manifest or happen. In a culture where "declaring and decreeing" is super popular, we thought it helpful to address a common fallacy that plagues both Christians and non-Christians today.
In this episode, Ayanna guides listeners through what The Bible teaches about "speaking things into existence", who that power really belongs to and breaks down what the proof-texts that are used to support the unbiblical belief that one can, actually mean in light of the entire story line of Scripture.
It is our hope that by the end of this episode, you will be challenged to revisit God's Word on the passages taught through, if you have fallen into the false belief that you can control and create realities with your words.
